Food Storage Series- Dairy Products from Powdered Milk

Dairy Products from Powered Milk

Powdered Milk is a staple in food storage.
Most dairy products can be made from re hydrated Powdered Milk which makes it very versatile.

In this Food Storage Series, We will explore the how to make yogurt, cream cheese and cottage cheese.

First up will be Yogurt Making.

If you have been with me for a while you might remember this post about my EasiYo Yogurt Maker. I liked the EasiYo maker but had my concerns about the cost of the sachets.

In Making the Best of Basics Family Preparedness Handbook, I found a recipe for Basic Yogurt from Powdered Milk. The recipe is as follows:

2 cups warm water
1 cup powdered milk
2 Tablespoons yogurt starter

Slowly add powdered milk and yogurt starter to warm water.
Mix with whisk until all lumps are out.

I placed the mix in my EasiYo, following manufactures directions.
The yogurt will set in 3 to 4 hours.

I just set a batch out....... I will let you know how it turns out!

Holy Crap lady, I can't believe your eye!!!!!! I hope you are all healed up by now. I've been so far behind in blogging because it is our prime climbing season so we are busy, busy going to Kentucky whenever Mike can get work off and every weekend on top of that!! I'm sorry to be such a bad neighbor. I could have at least brought you dinner or dessert or something. SO glad you were able to get it taken care of so quickly!!! My dad had skin cancer on his face last year but not that close to his eye...little under it and on the side of his nose. It makes me want to schedule my yearly dermatologist appointment! I have bad skin so they are always removing things. Better safe than sorry. So scary but I'm so happy you are on the mends. :)
